**CANCELLED** smart Spring Nationals-Destination Daytona

smart Spring Nationals-Destination Daytona!
March 2012

WHAT: To all smart owners wherever you are…….A team of Central Florida owners and enthusiasts is announcing an all new smart car event as an extension of the 3 outstanding Orlando Anniversary events of 2009, 2010, and 2011. All the previous organizers from the first three Annivesary events, along with other smart enthusiasts, are planning an event to rival the initial 2010 Nationals event.
WHEN: We encourage you to block off the dates of March 1-4, 2012 on your calendar now and watch the forums for updates regarding what will be an outstanding event. The event is on the weekend between the Daytona 500 and the start of Daytona Bike Week and during the spring Break Season.
WHERE:The event will take place at Destination Daytona which is the world’s largest Harley Davidson Dealership but is also much more with available parking for hundreds of cars, an on premise hotel, on premise bars and restaurants, a huge covered pavilion and other amenities. In addition, it is within easy driving distance of the Beaches, St Augustine, The Daytona Speedway, The Space Center and Cocoa Beach and is only an hour from Disney and Universal Studios.
We have already negotiated a great hotel room rate on the property.
TO DO: We are already planning a day of optional scenic and sightseeing drives; a cash bar cocktail hour each evening; a half day with the cars on New Smyrna Beach; a group photo opportunity at the beach or the speedway or at another major venue; a BBQ dinner included in registration and dancing under the pavilion to all types of music from a DJ.
We are just beginning the serious planning for this event.
- We will begin a web-site to publish registration, announcements, and reservation information.
- Add to the things-to-do-while-you-are-there list.
- Gather sponsors

What can possibly be better than Florida in early March?

Plan to join us for this exciting event and watch closely for updates and further details.
(early questions can be sent via PM to kwager)

It is important to note that this event is being produced by wdhitch, bonchy, smart car customs, kwagar and a few other central Florida enthusiasts all of whom have been involved in the very successful Orlando Anniversary events of the past three years.

In addition GetSmrt28277 is working directly with us to provide excellent contacts with smartUSA and after the transition to MB management.

The plan is intended to upgrade the event to a major regional event similar to the nationals that took place last year in Kansas City and we will be naming the event something other than the 4th Anniversary of Orlando to something more related to a new location and new activities. Watch for that announcement!

We have a great location, outstanding hotel rates on the event property in the middle of spring break season and it should be an outstanding event.

March in Florida, beaches, bikes, NASCAR, smart cars, sightseeing etc......All we need is you.

Much more detail will be coming soon...If you have suggestions and would like to share them with us please PM us or e-mail me at [email protected]

Did the "Loop" with several of the initial planning committee. It was a beautiful 22 mile drive. Very scenic. The accommodations at Destination Daytona are great! Looking forward to this one!

I may go to this one. I have family extremely (as in VERY close) to that area.

PS - Ken - If I can help on the Destination Daytona portion in anyway let me know.

I have cells of "my people" set up all over. You just happened to run across one of them. I was notified the moment you pulled into the parking lot, before you guys were even out of the cars.

I get notifications anytime 3 or more smarts pull into certain parking lots across the US.

6 of us did a facility check last Sat at Destination Daytona. This could be the best venue for a large smart car rally in the USA. Has everything going for it, great hotel, unlimited parking, three restaurants, a huge covered pavilion, access to the beaches, etc, etc. This may turn into a National event in spite of being on the East Coast!!!!!!!

Block out the dates now and watch for further details!!!!!
